Study Guide Test on Circular Motion/Sound Waves

---------------------------

CIRCULAR MOTION: (Chapter 7,
Section 1 & 2)

Linear Velocity (depends on
radius), Angular velocity (stays the same)

Centrifugal Force
(fictitious….. only perceived force making you go in circle)

Centripetal Force … real,
pulling towards center.

CIRCLES

Circumference
= 2πr = WL

Linear
velocity = Circ/T

Centripetal
acceleration = v^{2}/r Force
= m * a

g
= 9.81 m/s2

Frequency
(Hz) = 1/T,

Describe how (speed,
acceleration, direction, etc…) your motion would change as you change position
(distance from center, location) on a merry-go-round/carousel.

A Physics
teacher swings a cup of water around his. How would you calculate: What is the
centripetal acceleration needed to make sure that the water doesn’t fall out?

What is the
minimum speed at which he must swing it?

What is the
period of his swing?

-For an
amusement park ride like the pirate swing, draw a picture of how the energy
changes over time.

How would you
calculate the acceleration and speed at the bottom?

SOUND: (Chapter 13)

Longitudinal Wave, air, in
all directions

Intensity varies as the area
of the sphere. Decibels

Frequency=Pitch, Amplitude
=Loudness, Quality= Type & # overtones

WAVES: Period
T=1/ƒ V=ƒ *WL for any wave

Sound Open Pipe
WL=2 L ,1L, 2/3L, 1/2L, 2/5L ƒ, 2ƒ, 3ƒ,
etc.

Closed
Pipe WL=4 L, 4/3L, 4/5L, 4/7, ƒ, 3ƒ, 5ƒ etc...

Standing Waves ƒ
= nV/ 2L for strings, open pipes (n = number of antinodes) n=1 is the
fundamental

ƒ = nV/ 4L for closed pipes
(n = number of antinodes)

Beats: ƒ=ƒ1-ƒ2

V=331 m/s + .6 *
Temp for Sound

Doppler Shift
f=f0 (Vsnd + Vdetector)/(Vsnd-Vsrce)

10^{-12} Watts/m^{2}
= 0 decibels

10^{-11} Watts/m^{2}
= 10 decibels = twice as loud, 10 times as intense

10-10 Watts/m^{2} =
20 decibels = four times as loud as original, 100 times as intense

Intensity = Power/Area

Describe how air
vibrating makes musical sound waves in an instrument like a trumpet as compared
to a violin. Be sure to use wave vocabulary words such as resonance,
harmonics, closed pipe, standing
waves, etc…

How can beats
and resonance be used to find out if a guitar is in tune?

Draw a picture
of what the waveform and sonogram would look like for a:

Tuning fork

Whistle being
made on a train coming towards, then away from you.

White noise

Pipe Organ (open
pipe with 3 very strong overtones)

Describe how to
calculate the distance at which I could play my electric guitar and still cause
pain from the volume. (decibels, loudness, intensity)

Describe the factors that
could change the sound of a guitar string and why.
